KAMLOOPS - A local resident shot a quick video from Kamloops' Labyrinth Farm when they saw something falling from the sky. 

"I kept filming after it disappeared and thought to myself... is this it... is this the end of the world as we know it... but nothing happened," wrote the administrator of the Labyrinth Farm Facebook page.

Labyrinth Farm is located on Westsyde Road in Kamloops.

Joanne Rosvick, an astronomer who works at TRU, believes the phenomenon is debris falling from space. 

"(It) seemed to be moving too slowly to be a meteor," she says. Rosvick added it could possibly be a satellite as some were predicted to fall. 

Whether the piece is debris or not is unknown at this time. Rosvick says the only way to determine what happened is to examine where the item landed.

Take a look at the video below:
